      I'd call flop, cause I'm not after a nuts flush. Also I'd hope I'd make my gutshot in order to stand a better chance of wining and stacking my opponents. All in with such a hand against such odds... I wouldn't go for it.

      But i have a double gutshotter and didn't give my opponents a better flush draw here, but sets or two pairs. And against them i have almost 50% equity.

      Sorry ur right, u did have double GS, my bad on that one. That of course changes the situation a lot and I guess I'd play it the same way u did. Too bad u didn't hit.

      Fold preflop, (again even a raise would be better than a call i believe, but fold).
      1. You are wasting money with these calls. Same as the 32o SB limp.
      2. You bring yourself in hard spots, were you can make lots of mistakes. Keep it simple. Certainly if a mistake can lose you a whole stack (no-limit!) in a limped pot. You started by losing 1 BB and now you lost 99BB more!

      On the flop I would assume that i have 8 outs to the nuts, as mentioned, you need to discount some outs for your fdraw. I would have played it as you on the flop.

      Hey, so a big thx for your analysis on this and the other hands.
      I see, that i should fold those hands (8Ts, 23o,...) preflop more often to have a safer play, even out of the SB (i don,t play them from CO, MP or so)

      Calling or raising are both fine on the flop.
      You have very strong draw, but you don´t have to get it all-in on the flop.
